number of problems, poor education of how to adapt economically and a globally interdependent world. that could cause all kind of social dislocations in the united states. so i hope that's the great thing about it, that's one reason we should be so grateful to dr. king and not see him as a leader for black folks. we should see them as a leader for fairness and for dealing with the most troublesome problems we have by that message. if we do that we have a chance to address these problems before they become acute, before they become -- we have terrible social dislocations. so yes, i think these are very serious issues. i think the health of a democracy and the capacity people, it's no joke that we sit around and we said it would totally dysfunctional. and what i'm hoping is some of that comes out of culture. ever all local to sleep in a sense of cynicism about politics and don't see that politics start with you and me and what we're going to do and who we are going to talk to tomorrow, and how far we're going to reach to try figure how we ca can address any one of the serious problems

court, there's one in affirmative action, higher education at the university of texas. we can see a decision in that probably soon. it was back in october, i think voting rights case out of alabama questioning the continuing wisdom and constitutionalty of a law, the section of the voting rights act that requires states certain jurisdiction. i'm not talking about the confederacy. to clear any election regulation be it moving your poling location from a firehouse to a schoolhouse by the federal government. it is not correlated of voting rates of minorities. so we're probably going to see the supreme court strike that down which will make waves. and of course, a couple of gay marriages are before the court. it is highly unlikely that the supreme court this term will strike down all restrictions on gay marriage, require all states to provide it. the cases they took can be decided without reaching that point. one is the defensive marriage act, section three about federal benefits that the federal government has to give certain benefits to people who are lawfully married in their state

is that we really do have to continue to educate the public. that's where the real action will be. yes, you'll have leadership in the senate and house talking back and forth, but the reality for some of us who have been in town in washington is that we've got to make some movement. and the political will of the republicans, i think, to engage with the latino community is somewhat real in certain sectors. you still have to remember the makeup of congress is still dominated by individuals who don't represent minority districts. so that's going to be the real test. my hat goes off to the new members of the house and the senate and the reality that latino -- the dreamers and other people are realizing how important it is. this is an economic issue as much as a security issue. >> i think it's important to underscore that it's the first great step, that there's a bipartisan group in the senate working on this, that there's a group also meeting in the house working on this. >> you're actually me not to harsh the mellow too soon. we should be applauding -- >> i think you're right. the devil is in t
